I want to get the theme root URL with PHP. What would be the best way to do that?

There is a function called get_theme_root() which gives me the path but not the URL.

Maybe just get the current themes or parent themes URL and cut the theme directory off? How do I do that?

I think you just want get_theme_root_uri(). Note that it doesn't contain the trailing slash.

  • lol there is a function for that. well i just was ready with echo dirname ( dirname( get_stylesheet_uri() ) ); ;/
